I love the Charles Hotel. The location, restaurants, people, services are great. BUT, there are now bums sleeping on the benches outside the hotel, the staff does not clean up garbage that is left on the walkways to the river side of the hotel, the spa has not been painted or renovated in years (despite great services and people) - in short, the management/ownership seems not to care anymore about its infrastructure and exterior cleanliness. I still recommend it, but they need to get their act together. Surely they can call the State or Cambridge police to keep the bums from sleeping in the park; get their staff to patrol and remove the garbage; take some pride in their environment.
